Let’s get right to it. There’s been a lot happening on the writing/publishing front for me over the past month. Spring is coming, and the year’s picking up speed. Here’s the recap: Book Launch Celebration Event Yes, that’s an unnecessarily long and awkward title. But while at first I thought you could only have oneContinue reading “Le printemps arrive.

Hit the Ground Running.
Start off with a bang. All the cliches for the New Year. It’s not what I was expecting at all. You know that feeling, when things are shifting around you, and you’re being pushed in a specific direction? Deep down it’s right—what you were meant to do. What you’ve always wanted. And it’s close, soContinue reading “Hit the Ground Running.”

Shameless Self-Promotion (A Request)
A very wise friend of mine recently made an excellent point: subscribers to my website might not necessarily know about, or have checked out, my Facebook writer page. And this very wise friend of mine suggested that I ask said subscribers to give me a like over on Facebook. I do post all sorts ofContinue reading “Shameless Self-Promotion (A Request)”
I didn’t write yesterday. Not a word. Despite setting aside the entire afternoon, a glorious few hours for uninterrupted productivity, on the longest day of the year. June is busy, even during a pandemic. When All the Things that come with season’s end take over, time is hard to come by. So I’d settled myselfContinue reading “Summer Solstice”

Provenance Unknown: An Update
The year 2020 has been a Rubik’s Cube of emotion, an ever-changing combination of sadness, inspiration, confusion, anxiety, and connectedness. There have been days of merriment, days of not wanting to get out of bed, days of frustration. Sometimes the right squares aligned, and other times the colours were a contradictory jumble. I have experiencedContinue reading “Provenance Unknown: An Update”
